From Michael Haneke, the director of critically acclaimed European hit The White Ribbon in 2009, comes a heart-breaking drama that teaches the audience about the power of love and gives them an in-sight to life when reaching the period of old age. The French title 'Amour' simply translates 'love' into English, which immediately indicates to the viewers what the central theme is as well as what typ... read more

Man, even though the guy is already around 70 years old, he is definitely on fire right now and won with this movie his 2nd Golden Palm in a row at the Cannes Film Festival and it won many other awards as well. And, indeed, it definitely deserved all the praises it has received and, person... read more

Description: Georges and Anne are a couple of retired music teachers enjoying life in their eighties. However, Anne suddenly has a stroke at breakfast and their lives are never the same. That incident begins Anne's harrowingly steep physical and mental decline as Georges attempts to care for her at home as she wishes.

My Top 50 Favorite Films of 2010s (50 movies items)

"Haunting ! Love it or hate it, I don't know but I can't resist the power of this film ,I almost hate it but the performance from Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva is really great and I loved them personally. Brilliant directing and performances and the story that may linger in your mind forever,that's the reason I'd give it 10. But it's the film that I don't feel like wanting to "touch" it again."
